Methods in Physical Chemistry, 2 Volume Set (3527327452) cover image
Thanks to the progress made in instruments and techniques, the methods in physical chemistry have developed rapidly over the past
few decades, making them increasingly valuable for scientists of many disciplines.

These two must-have volumes meet the needs of the scientific community for a thorough overview of all the important methods currently
used. As such, this work bridges the gap between standard textbooks and review articles, covering a large number of methods, as well as the
motivation behind their use.

A uniform approach is adopted throughout both volumes, while the critical comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of each method
makes this a valuable reference for physical chemists and other scientists working with these techniques.

Peter C. Schmidt is a retired Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Technical University of Darmstadt. He is working in the field of Theoretical Solid State Chemistry. From 1992 to 1998 he was editor of the Berichte der Bunsen-Gesellschaft, an international Journal of Physical Chemistry, and from 1999 to 2010 he was the editor of the Bunsen-Magazin, a journal of the German Bunsen Society of Physical Chemistry.

Rolf Schäfer is a Professor of Physical Chemistry at the Technical University of Darmstadt. His major interest is in small clusters, isolated in the gas phase but also supported on surfaces. He is focussed on the development of molecular beam and surface science techniques to study the magnetic, optical, catalytic and thermal properties of clusters in dependence of size and composition. At present, he is the editor of the Bunsen-Magazin, a journal of the German Bunsen Society of Physical Chemistry.

Methods in Physical Chemistry, 2 Volume Set

Wiley is pleased to announce the much-needed publication of Methods in Physical Chemistry, the only reference available which gives a thorough overview of all the important current methods used in Physical Chemistry.

During recent years there has been a revolutionary development in the instruments and techniques used in Physical Chemistry. These methods are becoming increasingly valuable not only to physical chemists but also to scientists of many related disciplines who use them too, such as physicists, materials scientists, biologists and chemists. Because the pace of development has been so rapid, the scientific community has been in great need of this reference for some time.

Methods in Physical Chemistry  provides an overview of the most important methods currently used. With uniform approach it gives a critical view of the advantages and disadvantages of each method, comparing them and showing how they are linked.   

This is a truly indispensable reference for physical chemists and all other scientists working with these techniques. Methods in Physical Chemistry deserves a place in every chemistry library, both academic and industrial.
